The Future of Animal Rights Activism : Meeting with Senator Christine Teunissen from Party for the Animals
On 28th November , Senator Christine Teunissen from Party for the Animals kindly hosted us in the parliament building in The Hague , Netherlands.
Who are Party for the Animals ?
With their own words :
” The Party for the Animals is the first political party in the world, which does not put the short-term interests of man at the pivotal position, but the entire planet and all her inhabitants instead. Thus, a fundamentally different approach than the traditional parties, which focus on the short-term interests of people and in particularly on money and economic growth without thinking about the consequences for humans, animals, nature and the environment. ”
Their approach in animal welfare and animal rights is global , unique , pioneering ; a vision that intersects with our long term mission statement which considers the benefits of every species equal.
For so long , we have been fighting to save the abused , the neglected or the animals that have been otherwise less favored together. Animal rights policies in Middle East where we are more active are far from being efficient in protecting them. We held hand in hand with you to stand for their right to live.
We are glad to observe that the climate in animal rights activism is beginning to shift thanks to the efforts of this very effective group of people and we know this is only the beginning of a big global transition where we are happy to support their mission.
We thank Senator Christine for hosting us once again.
